Gudauri is a mountainous region in Georgia located 120 km (75 mi) or about 2 hours north of its capital, Tbilisi, making it convenient for short, weekend ski trips from December through April. Snow on the road can make driving slow or nearly impossible at times following a big storm. The mountain’s average skiable elevation is 2,133 m (7,000 ft) above sea level, so the weather can be chaotic and extreme.
